Amazon has released another Kindle software update for the second time this month, but this time the update is only available for the Kindle Scribe.
They tacked on a “.1” to the previous update so now the current software version for the Kindle Scribe is 126.96.36.199, while the 10th and 11th generation Kindles are still on 5.16.6.
The release notes remain unchanged from the last update so it’s probably just a minor bug fix for something or other. If you’ve encountered any problems on your Kindle Scribe since installing the last update, then you might try installing this update to see if the problem has been fixed.
Updates for the Kindle Scribe have kind of slowed down over the past few months, but Amazon is still adding a few new features here and there. They added the option to delete using the Lasso Select tool with the last update, and the one before that added the multi-select option to rearrange, add, and delete notebook pages from the Notebook Overview screen.
Maybe something new will turn up with this update too. The release notes often leave things out so you never know what changes you might find when a new software update is released, and sometimes it takes a while for changes to occur as they’re activated remotely at a set time. If you notice any differences since the last update leave a comment below.
The 188.8.131.52 update can be downloaded from the Kindle Software Updates page at Amazon if you want to manually install it now. Otherwise the update will download and install automatically at some point while your Kindle is connected to WiFi, but that can sometimes take several weeks.
